Queen’s Road West, the vanishing neighborhood Photography Book
A perfect gift and homage to the vibrant city of Hong Kong. This beautiful photo book documents the traditional character of the city's Queen's Road West through a series of photographs by noted photographer William Furniss.
Prompted by the disappearance of the iconic Sammy’s Kitchen neon cow, Sovereign Art Foundation Chairman, Howard Bilton and photographer, William Furniss undertook the task of documenting the history of the traditional shops along Queen’s Road West before its quirky and traditional character is lost. The project resulted in the book, Queen’s Road West, the vanishing neighborhood. The book includes Cantonese and English text describing the histories of the shops and the people who run and own them.
All proceeds from sales of this book will be donated to The Sovereign Art Foundation to assist their work in helping disadvantaged children around the region and in Hong Kong.
